BRAZIL — Cloverdale came out on the short end of a 50-0 result on the road at Northview High School on Friday night in the Western Indiana Conference Cross-over contest. The Clovers wrap up the regular season at 3-6 and finish sixth in the WIC race.

The Class 2A Clovers had the unenviable task of matching up with the Class 4A Knights in the schools’ first meeting on the gridiron.

With plenty of numbers and size, Northview dominated on both sides of the ball in a game that featured a running clock in the second half.

Northview took the game’s opening kickoff and marched to Cloverdale’s 12-yard line before the Clovers’ defense forced a fourth-and-three yard situation for the Knights. However, Northview went to senior running back Dylan Hyatt, who scampered around the right end and scored the game’s first TD four minutes into the game.

Hyatt and sophomore back MJ Shelton did much of the damage in the opening half, combining for 180 yards on the ground and three touchdowns.

Cloverdale was able to force a punt on Northview’s second possession of the game as Ethan Radford sacked Northview quarterback Trey Shaw for a 12-yard loss on third down. However, Northview’s defense was tough all night, limiting Cloverdale just a single first down in the contest.

The Knights scored the game’s second touchdown on the following drive as Shelton capped a 34-yard drive with a one-yard scoring run to open the second quarter.

On the Clovers’ third possession, QB Tyce Jackson hit Tyler Kaeff for a 36-yard reception into Northview territory. The drive would stall from there as Northview stopped Jackson on a pair of runs and an incomplete pass.

The Knights’ defense fed the offense short fields much of the evening.

Shaw hit Hyatt for an 18-yard reception and found Kalen Schane for a 14-yard pickup on the next drive. Shaw fired a strike to Hyatt on the sideline for a 28-yard scoring pass and a 21-0 lead with 10 minutes left in the half.

Northview would eventually take a 42-0 lead at intermission.

In the second half, Northview added a safety on a ball snapped over Jackson’s head into the end zone. Junior varsity running back Allen Haire finished the scoring on a 59-yard run in the third period.

Cloverdale opens sectional play at home Friday evening against Cascade.

The Clovers beat the Cadets 8-6 on Sept. 10.
